Ivysaur (Japanese: フシギソウ Fushigisou) is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Ivysaur's appearance is very similar to that of its pre-evolved form, Bulbasaur. It still retains the turquoise skin and spots, along with its red eyes. Ivysaur's top fangs are now larger and are visible outside of the mouth. Also, its ears are now darkened to black in the center. The most notable change is that the bulb is starting to bloom, with pink petals visible, and large leaves on the bottom.

Abilities

Ivysaur's ability is Overgrow, which increases the power of Grass-type attacks by 50% once the Pokémon has less than one-third of its maximum HP.

The bud that it carried on its back as a Bulbasaur has grown into a full blossom when it had evolved and can grow larger in sunlight. As the blossom grows, Ivysaur loses the ability to stand on its hind legs. The blossom produces a pleasant smell when it is ready to bloom, and Ivysaur is ready to evolve into Venusaur.

Gender differences

Evolution

Ivysaur will evolve from Bulbasaur at level 16 and evolves into Venusaur starting at level 32.

Appearances

Anime

Ivysaur first debuted in the episode Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden. During the episode, many Bulbasaur gathered to a secret location for an Evolution Ceremony, where they possibly evolved into Ivysaur.

An Ivysaur was in the episode The Ultimate Test, which was used by the entrance exam teacher.

Crystal was shown to own an Ivysaur, seen in the episode Putting the Air Back in Aerodactyl. May's Bulbasaur evolved into Ivysaur prior to her Diamond and Pearl Debut.

Other

Ivysaur is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, as one of the three Pokémon usable by the Pokémon Trainer, or Red. Ivysaur is surprisingly agile in the game, being able to jump to a great height and attack with great speed. Its moves, based upon Grass-type moves in the Pokémon games, are SolarBeam, Vine Whip, Razor Leaf, and Bullet Seed.

Trivia

  • It is a member of the only Starter Pokémon family to have the same type as its whole evolutionary line, the others being its evolutionary family.
  • Interestingly, all of the Pokémon the Pokémon Trainer uses in Super Smash Bros. Brawl have been used by Ash, including Ivysaur if you count his pre-evolution.
  • Ivysaur is the only Grass-type starter's first evolution that has a second type.

Etymology

Similar to Bulbasaur, it appears that Ivysaur's design is based on an flower that has yet to bloom with a small dinosaur below it.

Names in other languages

  • Japanese: フシギソウ (Fushigisou in Romaji) from the Japanese words Fushigi (不思議) which means strange and Sou (草) which means herb.
  • English: "Ivysaur" is likely a combination of the English word "Ivy" and the Greek word "Sauros", meaning lizard.
  • French: "Herbizarre", combination of the French words "herbe" (herb) and "bizarre" .
